    I believe it was a trap. I think he pretended he was still sexually interested in her and came on top of her saying he was going to do a sensuous massage and then strangled her. Why do I think this was the scenario? Because of the position her body was found, a thong she was wearing and his comment saying he touched her shoulder in bed. As she had rejected her sexually on the last few weeks I believe she would be eager to make love to him as she mentioned many times to him that she missed that. And in this scenario he killed the girls afterwards as I dont think she would be that calm if they were dead. The only thing I am intrigued is that she saw her crying and her mascara running down her face. So I dont know if her crying would happen if she was being trapped into believing that he wanted to make love to her. Also her buying beauty products at 2:30 is strange but I can see her doing that more than him pretending it was her. Although Scott Peterson did exactly that: did some search for an umbrella I believe so people would think it was her still alive. However I believe SP is a bit more clever than CW.

    My long comments dont get posted for some reason so I will try a shorter one: I think it was a trap but in a way that she believed they were going to make love in bed, and thats why it was so easy to kill her. She came on top of her, on her back and strangled her. She was wearing a thong and her position when she was buried might be an indication of how she was killed

      Sorry, I meant to say HE came on top of her and not SHE

    “It wasnt right” Like it was no big deal. So nonchalant like he had killed a fly

      Exactly!!! “It wasn’t right”. WHAT?!?
      His choice of words prove he has no emotion or empathy. He had something seriously wrong with him for sure.

    Why is no one talking about how he got those girls into -inch openings of the oil tanks? HOW did he get them in there???

      It’s been mentioned a few times and is in the books, I believe the widest part of Bella (the shoulders) was 9 inches wide, and the hatch was 8″ wide, positioning them like a midwife pulling a baby out (shoulders tilted), or dangling them by one arm to change the angle of entry would mean she could be manouvered in.

    Genuine apologies Nick, Perhaps my phrasing regards the GPS data was clumsy but it categorically wasn’t sarcasm, and the aforementioned thief hatch post was a genuinely factual error made in haste, I will refrain from posting in future, as you wish.
